Let Us Fit Your WHILL To Meet Your Unique Needs

Proper fit not only increases comfort but can also ensure optimal posture, swallowing, and breathing while preventing bruising and other injuries caused by pressure to the hips and back. Whatever your situation, there is a configuration that will fit your needs! 

 When it comes to personal mobility devices, you have many different options for how they feel, fit, respond, and what they enable you to do. We love the WHILL Chair, but we also know that it’s not for everyone. This is why we also work to ensure that our WHILL Chairs are personally fitted to each of our customers.

Custom - Fit WHILL Chairs

At New Tech Mobility, we understand that a WHILL Chair is an investment, and we want to make sure that every little detail is perfect—including the fit! That’s why we offer custom fitting after your mobility device is delivered. Extra accessories, like back cushions, can also help customize your chair and improve comfort.

 When fitting a wheelchair, the ideal sitting position for most people follows the 90-90-90 rule. This means that there should be a 90-degree bend in the hips, knees, and ankle. Your backside should be to the back of the seat, contacting the wheelchair back, and your thighs should be parallel to the ground.

Measurements To Determine Proper Fit

There are a variety of factors that contribute to a well-fitting mobility chair. It’s important to have a professional take these measurements and use them to fit your chair to you.

Seat Width

The seat should be wide enough to accommodate your hips and avoid pressure wounds. However, it should not be too wide that the personal mobility device is cumbersome.

Armrest Height

The needs of the user determine the height of the armrest. For example, the WHILL Chair Model A does not have an armrest while the Model Ci2 does. If you do have an armrest, you’ll want enough to support your arms without drooping.

Footrest Length

Your legs should rest comfortably on your WHILL Chair and not dangle or cause a less than a 90-degree angle at the knee.
